This study is the outcome of close collaborative by a team in Uganda, with technical and financial support from the UNAIDS Regional Support Team for Eastern and Southern Africa, and UNAIDS Geneva. The UNAIDS Modes of Transmission model was customized for Uganda, and applied, to better understand pattern of new infections. The model results, together with existing epidemiological data and the conclusions of recently completed studies on the factors driving Uganda’s HIV epidemic, are compared with data on HIV funding allocations, to derive recommendations for strengthening Uganda’s HIV prevention response. This was part of a set of studies also done in Kenya, Lesotho, Mozambique, Swaziland and Zambia. The other countries focused more on synthesizing existing data and collecting new data to better know each country's HIV epidemic, comparing the epidemic with the national HIV response and funding allocation, also with the aim of improving HIV prevention based on evidence on what works to prevent new infections.
